The Castillo San Felipe del Morro, also known as Castillo del Morro, is a walled fortress of the XVI century located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Spanish colonizers built it to defend Puerto Rico from attacks from the sea although today it's just a place to visit and take a walk. From its walls, one can enjoy fantastic views of San Juan, surely one of the reasons for el Morro to be one of the most visited tourist attractions of the capital of Puerto Rico. It can be visited for free or with a guide and there are small maps and guides to delve into the history of this great monument. It is easy to get to the castle on foot but a taxi is a good alternative. In 1983 the Castillo del Morro was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This castle is in the San Juan Historic Site along with the Castillo de San Cristobal and el Cañuelo.
